THE ADVENTURES OF SINBAD

by Richard Hills

 

In a new version of the ever popular traditional Pantomime, Flossie Sinbad and her son Sammy set off on an exotic holiday and arrive at Baghdad Airport by plane. Unable to get a taxi into town, Flossie rubs a ring on her finger and the Slave of the ring appears.

Instead of the Slave taking them to modern Baghdad, he takes them to ancient Baghdad, where they land in all kinds of trouble. The Wazir of Police steals her ring and then it is stolen by Abdul Hassan who is a notorious Brigand Chief. How are they going to get the ring from the Brigand chief who is out to kill them?

Will they be able to get the ring back by the end of the week, so that the Slave of the ring can get them back to modern Baghdad Airport in time for them to get their plane home to England?
